Abstract

The populations of IIASA's member nations are currently experiencing dramatic changes in patterns of demographic behavior. The consequences of these changes are likely to be profound and their impacts are already being felt in labor and housing markets, in health care demand levels, in retirement income maintenance programs, and in what might generally be referred to as the service needs of "changing lifestyles". Yet the underlying processes producing these new patterns are imperfectly understood, and any assessments of future prospects therefore could be founded on false expectations. Nevertheless planning for social service requirements of necessity requires estimates of future levels of demand, and population projections traditionally have served as a driving force in such estimations.
